Yes. I have tykes. Two of the boy variety to be exact. To think they don’t influence me with endless creative sparks would be a mistake. They are my little muses who love to run literal and figurative circles around me, jump in puddles, and dig in the dirt – with cool kid gardening tools – looking for worms. There are days though that are simply too wet around here to let them run in the backyard (and let’s be honest, I don’t feel like cleaning up two giant piles of mud) so I had my mind set on bringing a sturdy little garden inside for them to enjoy on super wet days. We then threw in some dinosaurs for good measure.

Many thanks to Stacy at University Village’s Ravenna Gardens for helping me put this project together!
Loved the slide show! Your little gardener did a great job and gets a double (green) thumbs up. Thanks for another creative and fun idea!
Super cute!! I just may have to copy this project! Putting Ravenna Gardens on my list. I love that place!!!
Thanks so much! He did most of the work and loves it! (BTW – If you need some cactus soil give me a call. I have quite a bit left over and so happy to share!)
